Scalix email/calendaring turns 10, mates with Evolution

Software

Scalix Corp., which makes open-source enterprise email/calendaring products for Linux desktops, made two announcements Tuesday. It released Scalix 10, the latest version of its bread-and-butter email server software. It also released Scalix Connect for Evolution, an open-source connector that enables use of the Novell Evolution email client on Scalix servers.

Scalix 10 primarily solves the problem of scheduling meetings with users on multiple platforms and across organizational boundaries, the company says. Using open source iCal Exchange software, Scalix 10 enables cross-platform calendaring -- providing transparent exchange of meeting requests and responses between Scalix servers and email systems, such as Microsoft Exchange, Notes/Domino, and GroupWise, the company said.

Scalix 10 is available as both the advanced Enterprise Edition and the free, unlimited-use, Community Edition.

Key improvements in Scalix 10, as listed by the company, include:

So what's an open source advocate who wants to work with web applications to do? You turn to an open source alternative, of course. Let's take a look at three of them. Read more

Hackable voice-controlled speaker and IoT controller hits KS

SeedStudio’s hackable, $49 and up “ReSpeaker” speaker system runs OpenWrt on a Mediatek MT7688 and offers voice control over home appliances. The ReSpeaker went live on Kickstarter today and has already reached 95 percent of its $40,000 funding goal with 29 days remaining. The device is billed by SeedStudio as an “open source, modular voice interface that allows us to hack things around us, just using our voices.” While it can be used as an Internet media player or a voice-activated IoT hub — especially when integrated with Seeed’s Wio Link IoT board — it’s designed to be paired with individual devices. For example, the campaign’s video shows the ReSpeaker being tucked inside a teddy bear or toy robot, or attached to plant, enabling voice control and voice synthesis. Yes, the plant actually asks to be watered. Read more
